The Sunshine Coast Hinterland region encompasses the mountainous areas and plateaus behind the golden beaches, stretching from north to south and including the Blackall Ranges - often referred to as the "calm behind the coast". The region offers visitors a cool change in the heat of summer, with many things to see and do. Small picturesque villages such as Maleny, Montville and Mapleton offer comfortable and classy Hinterland accommodation, fine restaurants and many treats for lovers of gourmet food and drink.
The views of the Glass House Mountains are to die for, especially with early morning mist wrapped around the ancient volcanic peaks. Make sure you pack your camera if you venture into the Sunshine Coast Hinterland!
